Let's Be Productive

The more time I spend writing for this blog, the more I feel the need to open up a bit more and let you into my world. Today, that's exactly what I intend on doing.

So far, you've seen the silly, serious, and sentimental sides that build the incredibly random but surely lovely package that is Elise. But, even more than all of those things, I am a super Type A personality who may or may not have OCD. I'll never be sure because to be perfectly honest, I'm afraid I'm actually going to have it. But I digress....

My Type A personality helps me get through the most hectic times. I have planners and calendars scattered everywhere and am a champion to-do list maker. Sometimes, though, I get on the route of procrastination (ahem...Instagram) and I don't quite accomplish everything I must, leading to a breakdown which may or may not end with the "ugly cry." (Hint: it usually does.)

About a year ago, I stumbled upon a website that would change my levels of productivity forever. It's called Every day at about 6p.m. I get an email asking me what I've done that day. I simply respond and send and the information gets tracked in my calendar. Ever since, I've managed to be increasingly productive each day because the reminder email forces me to be accountable for each task I set out to do that day. 

I strongly recommend that you have a go at this! No, they aren't sponsoring this post. I just feel that when I find something I love that helps me become a better student/person/future publishing (or PR) girl, I need to share it with everyone in my situation. 

Challenge of the day: Let's be productive! And let me know what you think!
